Tuesday Giveaway - Blue Monkeey Style


Hey Blogstalkers!

It's Tuesday and you know what that sometimes means - time for a giveaway!  Today's contest is especially appropriate given yesterday's announcement.  I hope you enjoy! (P.S. This is my last 'baby' themed post for a while I totally promise.  I'll be back with another pretty amazing post - if I do say so myself - on Thursday - with pictures, lots of pictures.)

Hi Everyone! I'm Renee and I run the Etsy shop Blue Monkeey.  Blue Monkeey is named for my daughter whose favorite color is blue and whose nickname is 'Monkey'.



First I would like to thank Lauren for giving me this opportunity and for thinking of me for her Tuesday giveaway series! A very brief overview of how Blue Monkeey came to be - I left the world of sales when my daughter made an early debut (by 6 weeks) 3 years ago and became a Stay at Home Mom. As my little baby started to grow hair I started buying her clips...As she got older (and was able to speak) she suddenly had an opinion on the clips and wanted them to match her outfit (example: she had a hedgehog on her shirt, had to have a hedgehog hair clip). If the clip did not match she would not wear it. 

Fast forward a bit - After getting tired of buying clips I decided to figure out how to make them myself. Soon I was making them for my daughter and family. My daughter started pre-school this year and I started getting compliments on her hair clips. After some encouragement and support from family and some positive feedback from her classmates' moms, I decided to try selling them at her school's holiday craft fair as well as opening up an Etsy shop and they were a huge hit! 

Once I opened up shop and created a Facebook Page and became public with friends, I started to get more suggestions and feedback for different products. I started off just making the felt hair clips (since that is what my little one was wearing and wanting) and hair clip holders (had to find a solution to better organize all the clips!) and have since expanded to making headbands (for kids and adults, metal and elastic) and hair elastics (for kids and adults). I love trying out new things and figuring out how to do something different (it keeps me from getting bored). What makes it all worhtwhile for me is the smile from my little one when I cave and let her have a new clip or headband :).

So enough background on the company...my GIVEAWAY for this wonderful Tuesday! I am offering a "Summer Bundle" (see picture for actual items). In the bundle there are 6 felt hair clips in summer themes (including a patriotic flower) and an interchangeable elastic loop headband. The headband is super soft and stretchy and has a loop so you can wear it alone or attach your favorite clip to it. The hadband is hand sewn. I personally LOVE these headbands and wear them all the time! 





In addition, I would like to offer a special discount to everyone here. From now until June 18th 2013 save 15% on your entire Etsy order (www.etsy.com/shop/bluemonkeey) by entering coupon code TUESDAY15 at checkout. 

Thank you and good luck!

Renee

Thanks Renee!  Isn't her stuff awesome? (And SO affordable - most of her clips are under $3.50).  I pretty much wanted to buy thirty clips for myself when I first ran across her shop but Ryan was NOT all about that idea.  But now that I am having a small child I can totally stock up on hair clips.  Boys wear them too right?  I know my brother Davis did at least....though that might have been because he had four older sisters and we needed another pursuit after we got bored with painting his nails and draping his neck with feather boas....

Come to think of it I do remember my dad coming home from work and not being entirely pleased about Davisina's striking ensembles.  Hmmmm.

Anyway, her prize is fantastic and enormously suited to summer but I also wanted to show off some of my other favorites from Blue Monkeey.



Same rules as always apply.  To enter leave a comment.  A winner will be picked randomly on Monday.  May the odds be EVER in your favor Blogstalkers.

  8. Those are ridiculously adorable (love the PB&J!). And great timing on the post . . . I am scheduled to have a C-section in two days for my first child (a girl), so I will definitely be visiting Renee's page to stock up on clips!

  11. Very cute. My 1 year old niece is unpersuaded that she should keep a clip in her hair, but perhaps she just hasn't found one she likes yet.

    ReplyDelete
  12. These are adorable. I have a few little girls in mind that would love these!

    ReplyDelete

  14. Nice product! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh man! I've got an almost 2 year old with the most unruly hair. Maybe if she saw these super cute clips she'd actually keep them in her hair!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the ninja, and some of her headbands are so beautiful. I am wondering, though, if you actually kept sending pictures of babies to Ryan as you said in a recent post, or if that behavior was suspended due to !pregnant! and wondering if you are actually sending him pictures of nurseries.....

  28. I have a serious hair clip addiction for my daughter - she TOTALLY needs these hair clips! As a bonus - she had to wear a school uniform next year, so my only opportunity to have fun will be via hairbows and clips and headbands. She NEEDS these.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I totally needed a cute idea for a niece's birthday gift. THANKS! Your blog, by far, costs me the most money :)

      If you won I would ship it to you :) Shipping to Canada is something I have been looking into. I have been thinking about adding it as an option, you may have just helped me make a decision :)

  46. Those are super cute ! My daughter is too old for these, so if I end up winning, please pick someone else.

    I just had to say that my baby brother is 8 years younger than me, and I totally did the same thing to him. We have pictures of him in a dress, heels, makeup, and a hat. Surprisingly, he was not traumatized by the experience. I think he was just happy that his big sister was playing with him. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love these! I'm so not a girlie girl but I would totally wear these!

    ReplyDelete
  48. These would be adorable!! I'm 32 but would happily wear many of these on one of my more whimsical days. Or clip them to my dog. He's a he. He'll wear hair clips. If I make him. Ok maybe a better idea would be to give them to my nieces. And keep one or two for myself. Very cute stuff!

  95. LOVE these clips! May these clips be ever in my daughters hair (see what I did there?? ;).

    ReplyDelete
  96. Blue Monkee, love the story behind the name. REALLY love that patriotic flower, that will remain in my hair all throughout July, will need a few more red and or blue shirts just to compliment it tho!

    Oh and BTW, since I was away for the biggest news on the NET last week? Congratulations Lauren & Ryan, that's going to be one stunning, funny, curious, intelligent, costumed offspring you'll be welcoming in January. Way to make a point Lauren! Gotta respect a girl that really has a goal & just keeps going for it.

    Please enter me, I'd be shocked to be picked because I'm just not lucky - so if it can be NOT random, here's my plea - I do utilize the hair band look a lot, clips would be a new adventure, but I'm game & I plug good products (repeatedly) on my own 300+ Facebook friends list. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
